Most serial killers wore shoes!

Makes sense. Being shod removes your connection to Mother Earth. One cannot remain sane under those circumstances.


That's why the Illuminati made shoe-soles.

Let's see, I'm 51, been eating meat for at least 50 of those years, am a gun owner and never had the impulse to go shoot a crowd of people. Huh.

It takes time. You will kill.

You probably don't wear shoes though, so that evens it out.

Yeah if you don't wear shoes the midichlorians are still connected to nature through your feet and they can't feed as readily on the meat.

I wear cowboy boots made of leather. Keeps me in touch with Mother Earth. Good thing I still got'em on or that roast I had for dinner might have driven me over the edge.

You are correct I'm a meat eater but only wears shoes outside, sometimes I'm even barefoot in the house so maybe it's down to a combination of eating meat, wearing shoes and socks. You don't see female mass shooters, they don't usually wear socks

It's the socks that cause this madness

As someone who's gone vegetarian for the past few months, while I've noticed some positive changes in behavior, I think you're grasping at some serious straws here lol.

Although I do recommend anyone who's interested to try it out. It's an idea I've mulled over for years and months, but I'm pretty happy I made the decision to hop off the meat train.

My philosophy is if I wouldn't kill it myself, then I probably shouldn't eat it. There are times where I miss meat a little bit. I even used to have a bacon wallet if that gives you an idea of my appreciation for meat.

But I'm not going to look down on anyone who still wants to indulge on the meat. It's delicious and it can be a chore to avoid it when eating out and such. Thankfully I live in a town with lots of vegan/vegetarian friendly restaurants.

As others have pointed out, giving up the meat ain't the cure to serious psychological disorders that a psychopath might be suffering from. It's an interesting notion though. I'm all for people paying more attention to their diet. If anything, it's all the additives and artificial crap that's put in food that's making them unhealthy both in body and mind.

If this was the case, why is the mass shootings picking up moreso now than it was early on?

Pretty sure people ate MORE meat products before the 1980s than after due to all the press and internet laden diet fads.

Honestly, look around folks, it's not mass meat eating, it's mass media causing the people to want to off others in mass.

Social media and news outlets spread the lifestyles and opinions of more and more each day, people in general read / hear these opinions and lifestyle choices and get fed up with them, couple that with their " bad day " or " bad luck " they get increaingly angry with people in general, pushing them to a point of breaking.

Ever hear that wise ole saying, Opinions are like buttholes, everyone has one, most often they stink.

It's the ability to know what others feel and think, and the lack of positivity portrayed in these outlets, if someone is going to snap, they're more likely to snap for a cause than just because. Attaching their thoughts / opinions to a cause creates a sense of purpose stronger than that rouge thought.

Meat has been consumed longer than we've had the ability to know what others think.

Lack of empathy + knowing how a majority of people feel + anger + mental disorder = someone reacting physically than emotionally

I've been a vegan for a little over six months and I can say that is has improved my health,energy levels and overall quality of life. That said I never once experienced a moment of moral dependency to the culture of meat-eating like you mentioned. Blaming the practice of eating meat and the effects of meat itself for the mentalities that permeate within humans is a bit ambiguous don't you think?

Our diet has a very insignificant effect on our cognitive functions in such a short period, how you perceive your self after any diet change is merely a placebo mirroring your intentions prior to the "change". I understand why blaming an external factor like the practice of eating meat in this context might make sense but in the long term I would say the main factor is the many cultures that practice meat-eating and how these cultures socially pressure individuals to participate.

In other words, humans are to blame for the mass consumption of animal products.Humans are also to blame for the all the violent acts and radical mentalities not the animal products.

Giving it some serious thinking, I do not think meat is the poison, but more the pre-packaged chemically induced post production style foods that cause the problems. It is the preservatives. Coating our Hearts in Plastic, so we turn into unfeeling abominations. Raw meat cooked properly and fresh vegetables improve health it is the persevered stuff and the powder packets that give us diabetes and rage. We had cut down to real foods a couple months ago keeping meat as long as it has the bone in it still and I have noticed an improvement in my attitude and my children's behavior.

Something to Chew on.

Are you sure about that?
I mean. Sharks eat a lot animals. So do a whole lot of other animals, eat animals, masses of them.
Bats for example, they consume mass quantities of bugs. And bugs are animals. At, least, I don't think they are plants.

We would not be human if we didn't eat cooked meat. It gives our brains and bodies more energy to be intelligent, cooking basically takes away a digestive step. Without cooked meat you would be an ape and ever be able to even comprehend writing your post.

Actually, we are apes.

While it is highly feasible that our ability to cook stuff (not just meat, ever try eating a raw potato?) was involved in a sort of feedback loop with our evolution; people can, nowadays, provide just as many available calories (energy) and other nutrients without eating meat, thanks to a very wide availability of various foodstuffs which were not available to our protohuman ancestors. While it does entail more effort on the part of the modern vegan to do so (as opposed to the modern omnivore), it is also easier living now than it was in those very, very, very, ancient days.

Oh, and I think that vegans do, actually, cook stuff.

What about our diet?


It is obviously the lack of bacon, most terrorist acts are caused by people who do not eat bacon.

Get everyone eating bacon, problem solved!

Wow. A little farfetched for me. I see no correlation at all.
